Recently, we blogged about Animals In Art, featuring contemporary artworks spotlighting our beloved pets. At Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, we know that animals have been revered throughout human history as a source of fascination and inspiration.

Today, we begin a walk through Animals in Ancient Art, featuring works on view at the Chrysler Museum. The Chrysler Museum is free to the public, so grab a friend or loved one and see these amazing works [some estimated at over a thousand years old!] for yourself.

Today’s journey through Animals in Ancient Art begins in the Americas (Mesoamerica). Many of these sculptures are estimated to have been created in the years 100-900 CE [Current Era, aka A.D.], and one may have originated in 100 BCE. The “cat cloth” is estimated to have been created in the years 1100 – 1460 CE. For complete details on the age and origin of each piece, visit the Chrysler Museum.

This slide show features just some of the works currently on view. Frames and artists’ names are not shown; colors may appear different in these photos than in actuality.

The Artists Gallery’s current exhibit, “All About Animals,” features dogs, cats, birds, horses, fish, and wildlife — in other words, there’s something for everyone! And all pieces are created by local artists who live and work in our community. In fact, you may get to meet the artist whose painting you purchase.

“All About Animals” is on view through the end of April. Don’t wait — go see it!
